Hi everyone, just thought i'd post my little guessing game too!

This is my newly adopted baby Suzie, a pitbull mix from the SPCA.

But i cannot figure out what she might be mixed with.

She is tiny, at 5.5 months she's 20lbs.

here are photos:

and here she is only 3.5 - 4 months:

It's not that important that i know, i've just been wondering ya know?

Alot of people have sepculated that it's a German Shepard, but i think she is far too little.

Looks like a pitt/shepherd to me, but being so small.....hmmmm pitt/sheltie or mini collie........Then again she still has some growing to do, so I'll stick with pitt/shepherd

Dukes sister, Alice, looks just like that and weighs under thirty pounds. They are just over a year old. She has the same pointy nose and rings around her eyes she looks almost miniature greyhound/pit. Sorry I don't have any pix of her but here is one of Duke

Very hard to tell at that age. In the 3rd pic, she looks like a whippet mix or JRT mix. She does have a sheltie face in that pic, but her hair is so short..if she matures with shorter legs, I would say JRT.

She's simply adorable.:)

Aww how cute look at those little ears! I love that sweet face! I would have to say JRT if I had my vote. We will be able to tell better when he gets a little bigger! But, until than keep the pictures coming. :D

That third one looks like he might be mixed with this guy...

I love her ears. I would concur with LR that she sort of points to having JRT in her or maybe...Mountain Feist, which is a relative of the Rat Terrier. Mountain Feists definitely come in that color and normally don't go much bigger than 30-40lbs. If she's part mountain feist then the squirrels in your area are going to have lots of fun! :eek:

it's funny because i almost say whippet too. She has longer back legs than front ones....

i found a picture of a whippet-staff mix who belongs to a member of this site actually! (Siris?)

however, when i look at these guys i have a hard time not thinking she is mixed with them

she even sings like they do sometimes.... it's just i dont think i've ever seen one in my city ever....doesnt mean they don't exist tho.

Those ears! Adorable!

I've been fishing around at pictures, and i'm kind of think she may not be a Pittbull but a bull terrier mix.

it would explain her pointy face...The pictures of bull terrier mixes all look alot more like here than pictures of pitbull mixes.

I'm not sure but I know that she is beautiful. I don't see any whippet, but it's hard to tell without seeing a full pic of her standing. I don't know why but when I saw it I thought rodizian ridge back, or shepard.
